HTC’s latest flagship phone, the HTC Sensation, will be hitting the UK first, and is now available for pre-order through Vodafone. More importantly, Vodafone is shooting to have orders delivered by May 19th. The dual-core device will be HTC’s first to launch, and should reach other carriers a month or so after a period of exclusivity with Vodafone ends. Early summer sounds like a good time for the HTC Sensation on T-Mobile in the US, as well. Interested parties can find the pre-order at Vodafone’s site. Or would you rather wait for the beefier NFC version later in the year?
